Teddy Blueger, Pittsburgh Penguins

Hockey players are notorious for downplaying their injuries. Just try to get them to tell you how many stitches it took to close a gash. However, Pittsburgh Penguins center Teddy Blueger went the other way Wednesday in describing his jaw injury.

Like, all the bloody, gory details of the immediate aftermath of a hit he took into the boards Jan. 23 delivered by Winnipeg Jets defenseman Brenden Dillon.

Blueger, for the second day in a row, joined practice at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in a non-contact capacity and wearing a bulky protective piece over his surgically repaired broken jaw. Afterward, he spilled those gory details just as blood spilled from his mouth as he skated off the ice that night.
